7 Be silent before the Lord God!
For the day of the Lord is near;
the Lord has prepared a sacrifice
and consecrated his guests.
“I will punish the officials and the king’s sons
and all who array themselves in foreign attire.
everyone who leaps over the threshold,
and those who fill their master’s house
with violence and fraud.
“a cry will be heard from the Fish Gate,
a wail from the Second Quarter,
a loud crash from the hills.
For all the traders are no more;
all who weigh out silver are cut off.
and I will punish the men
who are complacent,
those who say in their hearts,
‘The Lord will not do good,
nor will he do ill.’
and their houses laid waste.
Though they build houses,
they shall not inhabit them;
though they plant vineyards,
they shall not drink wine from them.”
